Mvula Mandondo



I was commissioned to create the album cover for the incredibly talented band Mvula Mandondo. Founded by internationally respected percussionist, Saidi Kanda, in collaboration with multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer Edward Shearer. Mvula Mandondo presents an original fusion of Tanzanian village roots, urban rumba and Afro-Caribbean influences, blending traditional and modern instruments.

They wanted an album cover design that would reflect this eclectic sound, vibrancy and unique quirky style. I worked closely with them and photographer Marisa Findlay to hand craft a unique design that would really blow the doors off the World Music scene and truly make them stand out from the crowd.

Client Testimonial

“Working with Mish was a dream experience with results that more than give testimony to anything I can say. Any new ideas that I had as the album cover developed were quickly sketched out and presented for me to approve or scrap. Trust her 100% if you want to sit back and let her come up with the goods. Highly recommended and very professional.”
